Quote of the day No 192

Sunday 26 October 2014

IT was one of those glorious warm days we had in March 1938, to which posterity may refuse to give credence. Whether or not Bliss had tired him with talking I do not know, but the sun was certainly setting behind the poplars. We stood on the garden steps looking at the orb, now weary of well-doing. Yes, Bliss, I said, Ive read all your books on canoeing and waterways, and I envy your sixty years of it. I dont know that I want to shoot rapids; that isnt my idea of a rest. But Ive always wanted to take a holiday on quiet rivers and canals, seeing places to which roads and railways dont go; with no noise except the sound of water, and paddles, and the birds. Of course, I never shall now. . . .

Do you mean youve never been canoeing? he said.

Of course, I said, Ive idled in canoes hundreds of times, largely in backwaters, but Ive never travelled with one, though I once did a weeks sailing on the Ouse, and was wakened by COWS-,

Sir John Squire - Water-Music
